At 12:19 Officer Bob DeLee responded to 315 North Michigan Street for a two vehicle crash where one of the vehicles ended up on the curb and stairs leading to the bank.

Campbell told the officer he believed he continued to press on the accelerator pedal instead of the brake causing the vehicle to spin counter clockwise 180 degrees where it climbed the curb and came to rest on the steps of the bank near the sidewalk.
